NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Did you miss last night's "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are Jim Cramer's top takeaways for today's trading.
Dow Chemical (DOW): In an exclusive interview, Cramer spoke with Andrew Liveris, Dow's CEO, for an update on the company's transformation from a commodity to specialty chemical company.
Liveris said that for Dow, productivity is "a journey, not a destination," which is why his company is continually adopting a "less is more" strategy and becoming more technology driven and focused on customers. Dow has a portfolio of products that works no matter what the price of oil, Liveris continued, something that had not historically been the case.
When asked about Europe, Liveris said the demand is there in countries like Germany and with a strong dollar, Europe's economy is finally starting to move.
Turning to the topic of chlorine, a business Dow is in the process of spinning off, Liveris said Dow started in the chlorine business but now realizes that its capital can be better invested in higher-growth areas.
